My kids are both still young, not even elementary school aged. There are some parents at preschool we get along with well, but it's not the same sort of social setup as when they're in real school.

It is. Her primary job is a "real" job (she's some sort of medical assistant), so I get it from a purely rational perspective for her. I don't think she'll net much more cash working vs. babysitting, and she's taking a risk given the word-of-mouth nature of babysitting, but I see the argument in favor or bailing. Still, that doesn't make it any less shitty.
pay me in liquor and i'll be right over. i dont even need mayweather pacquiao. just TNT and nba playoffs
I've got a sealed bottle of Orphan Barrel Barterhouse, and I still haven't opened the Stagg Jr. I got in SS. There's also about half a bottle of Jefferson's Ocean in there and some other assorted opened bourbons (and other liquors) that are quite nice. Take your pick.
